Despite severe pain in the neck and shoulder, Anders Thomsen drove on Sunday afternoon at Edward Jancarz Stadium, where he scored 9 + 1 points when he and Gorzow beat Worclaw in the best Polish league.

- Yes, but it also cost a whole Monday, where I lay along. But in general I have received good treatment at a clinic in Gorzow, and I feel ready for the task in Holsted, says Anders Thomsen.

- I would not compete at all if I did not feel that I have a good chance of becoming Danish champion for the 3rd time in a row.

Anders Thomsen does not remember the details of the gruesome crash with Mikkel Michelsen during SES - Sønderjylland Elite Speedways match against Slangerup Speedway Klub.

- I probably hit right in the assembly of two sections of the Air Force, and accidentally bumped into the barrier, but I am also grateful that the injuries did not get worse, says Anders Thomsen, who is also looking forward to the meeting with the field at Moldow Arena in Holsted .

- It is a super good course that suits me well.

Mikkel Michelsen, who is suffering from a leg injury from the same crash, will not be in action on Wednesday, where he will be replaced by Lasse Bjerre.

Both Thomsen and Michelsen have a strong focus on Saturday's 4th division of the world championship, which is run on Thomsen's Polish home field in Gorzow.

SES - Sønderjylland Elite Speedway also has Nicolai Klindt and Jonas Knudsen in the DM final which starts at. 18.30
